“From this day on I will bless you.” Haggai 2:19
My dear friend, today, we are meditating on the promise verse found in Haggai 2:19 which says, “From this day on I will bless you.” Yes, my friend, God is promising you that from this day on He will bless you.
In our life many times we tend to look back. “Why has this blessing not yet come into my life? - I am still waiting for my life partner. Or I am still waiting for peace in my family. Or I am still waiting for the results of this test or this court case or this doctor’s visit.” “What will happen to my life?” “When will I get my blessing?” “When will I get my peace at home?” When will I be joyful as I once used to be?” Thus, we keep looking at our past and keep sulking and complaining and we get depressed. Sometimes this can lead us to destruction. My friend, we see in Genesis, the same thing happening in Lot’s life. The Angel of the Lord said to Lot and his family to never look back but to keep moving forward. He wanted them to move to a safe place. But Lot’s wife did not listen. She looked back just for a second to see what was happening and that turned her into a pillar of salt.
Yes, my dear friend, many times when you keep looking back, you keep thinking about what didn’t happen and when will it happen. This will lead to destruction. But our God always promises a life of prosperity and fullness. And as He has promised you, He will bless you from this day on. So do not lose hope! You must always be focused on the Lord’s promises for your life and keep moving forward. He will protect you and will give you what you need. And of course, He will give you His blessings. So, today I would encourage you to trust and claim that the Lord will bless you from this day onwards and keep walking forward towards those blessings. Rejoice always and have a blessed day!
Loving Lord, thank You for encouraging me with Your promise. You are the Lord Who delights in the welfare of Your children. I thank You for promising me that You will bless me from this day forth. Lord, I have put my past behind me and have decided to keep moving forward with my eyes on You. I believe that You have plans to prosper me and never to harm me. Lord, I pray that You will work all things together for good in my life and bless me according to Your riches in glory. Fill me with Your peace and joy and lead me day-by-day in every step of my life. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
